About the Game Design Niche
Game design is the art of applying design and aesthetics to create a game for entertainment or for educational, exercise, or experimental purposes. Increasingly, elements and principles of game design are also applied to other interactions, in the form of gamification. Game designer and developer Robert Zubek defines game design by breaking it down to its elements, which he says are the following: • Mechanics and systems, which are the rules and objects in the game • Gameplay, which is the interaction between the player and the mechanics and systems • Player experience, which is how users feel when they're playing the game. Games such as board games, card games, dice games, casino games, role-playing games, sports, video games, war games, or simulation games benefit from the principles of game design. Academically, game design is part of game studies, while game theory studies strategic decision making. Source: WikiPedia
